Fees are expensive compared to on line firms, but as I was away for much of the time I was able to rely on the team.

Dacres have been absolutely superb from start to finish. The support, service and professionalism is exemplary. Nothing has been too much trouble and the time given to our sale and subsequent purchase/rental especially from Jason has just been brilliant. We cannot speak highly enough of the service offered by the Settle Dacres office. From the first appraisal meeting it was evident that Dacres were in a different league to others in the field and we still feel that way. Thank you....

Selling our property with Dacre Son & Hartley was a very positive, stress free experience. We sold our house while living on the other side of the world and therefore communication was very important.

All aspects of buying and selling our properties were taken care of excellently by Dacres. Everyone we dealt with was very helpful and we could always speak to someone when needed. The viewings were easy to book and also provided a lot more info than some other agents. In terms of selling, they did a very good job considering we had a couple of offers immediately....

Jason worked very hard for me, he is an incredible agent who is mindful of how stressful the process can be. He encouraged viewings on my house with anyone he felt was suitable and provided very prompt feedback at all times. He made me feel I was the only property/customer he was dealing with. I can only describe Jason, Mel and Tom as a dream team, they were fun, supportive and it was a pleasure to deal with them all. Thank you so much!...

I have had first-hand dealings with a number of estate agents in the Settle/Craven locality and none come anywhere near the levels of professionalism and efficiency routinely carried out by these members of staff. Their detailed knowledge and grasp of the local housing market resulted in a realistic and achievable house valuation and they then tenaciously pursued the sale in a dogged and determined manner. They persistently kept me informed on the progress of the marketing and viewing details ...

Excellent value for money. I don't believe there are any in the locality who charge less commission - and there are no hidden charges!
